Quote from: Chris4078 on August 14, 2019, 06:29:44 pmI actually like the lettering for the 14
Quote from: MillerRichard1 on August 14, 2019, 12:17:28 pmWith your option 1, you basically just reiterated my point. I prefer there to be a change in number. (i.e. 24 or 73(like I mentioned)) just something different. With option 2, I don't mind that, but at the end of it all, it would still be considered a 14 route; you just have a letter to separate them. I prefer a different number. Having the 14 go to Collins TC and Springfield Mall is already good enough. Why should there be a need to have a 3rd location? Overall, so yes, you can still have the bus go to Austin-Madison, just change the overall number to something different
Quote from: MillerRichard1 on August 14, 2019, 03:28:22 amI think personally the 14 that goes to Austin-Madison needs to have a change in number. I mean it goes to too many destinations: Springfield Mall, Arrott TC, Collins TC, Austin-Madison and I think there's one more (correct me if I'm wrong). I'm not saying that the route has to be changed but just make the number something different. I know me and a buddy talked about different numbers. He suggested route 7, however, I was thinking (to stay within double digits) maybe like call it route 24 or like a route 73. Idk.. Just something different
Quote from: Dash5155 on August 14, 2019, 09:16:06 pmMadison is 2 streets off from the regular 14 route. So it's not like a whole different route or anything. Plus A L L late night 14 trips go there. Splitting it up would cause confusion if it was say a real agency because only late night trips and some rush hour trips go to Austin-Madison. If I was to split the 14 into separate routes, people would think Late night service on the 14 is getting eliminated, and the trunk of service along Buselton will seem to be "servered" during rush hours. In real life, agencies have rush hour cutbacks without renumbering the routes all the time.Legit, no weekend or midday service to that loop. It would make no sense to split it into it's own route. It would be a weird split.
Quote from: MillerRichard1 on August 14, 2019, 09:27:02 pmThen if anything,perhaps remove the 14 going to Collins TC and replace that with a different number, idk. I'm just offering up my suggestion for something different since it's the only bus that goes to 3 different locations (correct me if I'm wrong)
Quote from: Dash5155 on August 15, 2019, 01:16:14 amKinda yes kinda no? All route 14 trips serve Austin. Madison is just two stops east of the regular route on Buselton Avenue, but it's also the only spot where the bus could turn around without going off route. At night, all route 14 trips terminate at Austin-Madison.ALL service to Springfield mall, end service around Midnight (in the released this is routes 35, 124, 125, 204, and 214), ALL routes to Lakeland also end service at 12 midnight (due to Lakeland bus lines themselves not operating, which in the released version would be routes 214-219). The only place where route 14 can operate is along Buselton, which is why the late night trips end at Madison Loop. The only split-up that would truly make sense is the 14 to Springfield Mall trips and the 14 to Lakeland trips, but in the WIP version that will all be fixed. ALL trips will serve Springfield whether or not they terminate at the mall. In the released version, all route 34 and 35 trips cut back at 18th-City before headed to the depot, regardless of where it started. Central Directs do the same. The 46 was supposed to, but that particular update never came out. If you analyze the files, you'll notice that some 46 schedule files indicate a Pine Street cutback. This was never utilized (in the released version)Don't even get me started on the mess that is the current 215 bus, with two cutbacks (which will still be active when the lettered routes take over) which are used in both directions at all times.
Quote from: htownman25 on August 15, 2019, 08:49:36 amMoving on.......I read that the Greenville Transit Hub will be gone. Will that site be a parking lot (maybe) for the rail line that stops there?
Quote from: Dash5155 on August 16, 2019, 08:34:29 pmSuper ironic that you ask this right as I was gonna post about the change. This is Greenville Tran-I mean Metro StationI accidentally made route 102 obsolete because the 124 bus takes the exact same route as the 102 through Greenville, but runs more frequently than the 102.So uh... should I eliminate it?
Quote from: The Lycanroc Gamer on August 17, 2019, 07:46:45 amwhat will happen to the 102 and the 150
Quote from: Dash5155 on August 05, 2019, 11:36:29 pmRouting changes:Many existing routes will change based on some comments given in the past operations wise. GreenvilleGreenville Transit Hub will be reduced removed completely. All routes currently operating to here will be rerouted to serve Downtown Greenville and/or Springfield Mall.
Quote from: Jonathan the great on August 17, 2019, 10:13:49 pmYou should make 150 stop at Greenville Transit Hub in both directions
Quote from: htownman25 on August 18, 2019, 09:09:50 amThere's already some new circulator routes (operated by GREAT) going to the Greenville Metro Station.EDIT: Just rode the 150 from Collins TC to 30th Street Station and I'm suggesting that the current routing should stay as is.Reason: Lakeland commuters should be able to board the bus at Collins TC and then go straight to DT Cayuga City as quick as possible. Plus, it's already a long ride as it is.__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________With that out of the way, I would like to know if ALL of GREAT's services will use smaller buses? Oh and liking the new repaint/re-branding of GREAT.
Quote from: Jonathan the great on August 17, 2019, 10:13:49 pmYou shoud make 150 stop at Greenville Transit Hub in both directions
Quote from: The Lycanroc Gamer on August 19, 2019, 02:57:34 pmI have this suggestion: 102, but it runs nonstop to the airport
Quote from: htownman25 on August 27, 2019, 11:25:27 pmNice looking map I see here.
